About the ARHT

“The Auckland Rescue Helicopter Trust’s origins date back to the establishment of the Rescue Helicopter Service in 1970. Today, the Auckland based Westpac Rescue Helicopter is staffed full-time by a highly experienced flight crew consisting of pilots, paramedics and crewmen, and operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.  The service utilises two state-of-the-art Leonardo AW-169 helicopters, one BK-117 helicopter and one Rapid Response vehicle to assist with local medical missions close by to our home at Ardmore Airbase.”

2020 is the Auckland Rescue Helicopter service’s 50th year in operation. This is a milestone for the service, which started the world’s first ever civilian surf rescue helicopter service back in late 1970. Since then, the service has been tasked to over 20,000 thousands missions and is internationally recognised for its pioneering work in saving lives. – Excerpt from ARHT website
